What is a digital material passport?
A material passport is a digital document listing all the materials that are included in a product or construction during its life cycle in order to facilitate circularity decisions in supply chain management at the end of the building life.
At Cundall, we want to create a passport for materials and products that will also provide information before its use, so designers and contractors have a better understanding of the materials and their impact on the embodied carbon and health well-being of a project, facilitating the inclusion of the best low carbon and healthy materials that align with their design.
